Dear Patients and Friends,
I have exciting news for you! Almost seven years ago I opened Holger Dental Group in Minnetonka. My dream was to build a modern dental practice, focusing on close relationships with our patients, and applying the latest technologies and research to help achieve optimal dental and overall body health. Thank you for allowing me to serve you!
I decided that I want to make a bigger impact on the health of Minnesotans and expand our reach beyond Minnetonka. With this goal in mind, on February 3rd Holger Dental Group will begin treatment at our second dental office, located in Downtown Minneapolis. We will assume the operation of Dr. Jack Churchill. Dr. Churchill has practiced dentistry in the Medical Arts Building since 1984 and has decided to retire from the practice of dentistry in the middle of 2020.
I will be joined by Dr. Rochelle Akradi who will help serve our patients in both locations. I am particularly pleased to have someone with Dr. Akradi’s excellent training and reputation to assist me with your healthcare. In 2014, Dr. Akradi earned her dental degree from Tufts University School of Dental Medicine in Boston, Massachusetts. She is knowledgeable, caring, a superb technician, and is experienced in all facets of general dentistry. Dr. Akradi grew up in Eagan, Minnesota and has decided to return home after practicing dentistry in the Boston area for the past five years. She is absolutely awesome!
Dentistry is all about relationships. It is those relationships with you that have made these past seven years serving you so enjoyable. With that said, you will love the new Doc and flexibility the second location will offer you!
Thank you for your confidence, your trust, and most of all, your friendship.
With a full heart,
Dr. Holger P. Meiser DDS, MAGD

Dr. Rochelle Akradi, DMD
Dr. Rochelle Akradi is originally from Minnesota, growing up in Eagan and attending Eagan High School (Go Wildcats!). As a child, she was completely embarrassed by her own smile. Although she always knew she wanted to go into medicine, it wasn’t until her own self-confidence changed after braces, that she knew dentistry was the route for her. She says “I was lucky enough to have a female dentist, and a female orthodontist, which really helped me see my dream as a reality.” Dr. Akradi graduated Magna Cum Laude from Denison University in Granville, OH. She was also a successful college athlete, swimming all four years at Denison. She then continued East and went on to receive her Doctorate of Dental Medicine from the prestigious Tufts University School of Dental Medicine in Boston, MA.
Dr. Akradi spent the last five years practicing dentistry in and around the Boston area. She was voted Top Dentist, Best of Boston by Boston Magazine in 2017, 2018, and in 2019. Dr. Akradi is very passionate about dentistry, and about helping her patients. She says, “I love the ability to help people the day that I see them. There are not very many areas of medicine where you have the ability to fix something in that moment. With dentistry you do, which is something truly special!” In addition to being a passionate general dentist, she is also compassionate and understands dental fears and anxieties. She treats the whole patient and values the connection between oral health and overall health and wellness.Patients appreciate that she doesn’t just tell them what they need. Instead, she works closely to provide education and help them understand their diagnosis. Dr. Akradi believes that when you understand what is going on in your body, you can make the best decisions.
Dr. Akradi enjoys spending free time with her fiancé Nathan and with the rest of her family. She recently became an aunt, and has loved being back home in Minnesota for that! She loves to ski in the winters, and wake surf in the summers. Dr. Akradi also loves watching football and the Minnesota Vikings!
